FOXBOROUGH — While Zach Herivaux was glad to get on the pitch Saturday night, he didn’t want to talk about the way he was under-utilized during the Jay Heaps Era.
“(2018) is a different situation,” he said after New England’s 3-2 win over the defending MLS Cup champions, Toronto FC. “We were in a tough situation all season (in ’17). We weren’t performing, so it was difficult to take risks. I’m not going to talk about that subject; I’m just moving on to here.”
Before Saturday, Herivaux hadn’t seen significant minutes in a Major League Soccer match for the last 21 months dating back to August 2016: for many matches since, the Brookline native hadn’t even made the matchday squad, even though he was the club’s third Homegrown signing from the Academy.
